Soft Pumpkin Scones Recipe

My husband is a huge fan of pumpkin and we both love scones so this recipe for Soft Pumpkin Scones was a great combination.

This Pumpkin Scones Recipe produces a lightly flavored Pumpkin Scone that’s a nice subtle shade of orange. Our boys thought these were wonderful!

It will be on our “to make again” list for sure. I’m thinking it would be easy to stir in 1/3 cup raisins or pecans for a change of pace.

Soft Pumpkin Scones RecipeSoft Pumpkin Scones Recipe

From Taste of Home.


  • 4-1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 3 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Cold Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1-1/4 Cups Canned Pumpkin
  • 3/4 Cup Milk, Divided


  1. Combine first seven ingredients.
  2. Cut in Cold Butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In separate bowl, combine Eggs, Pumpkin, and 1/2 Cup Milk.
  4. Stir into Dry Ingredients just until moistened.
  5. On floured surface, knead seven times (I sometimes knead scones in the bowl).
  6. Divide dough into half and pat into two 8" circles. Cut into wedges and separate on ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Brush with remaining milk.
  8. Bake 400* for 15 - 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
  9. Serve Warm.


I subbed in Pumpkin Pie Spice for the Cinnamon.
